3:01am
political enemies. that's coming up. >> they always say a bird in the hand is worth something. well, take a look at this video. >> get a mike. >> oh my god. [ laughter ] >> come on. that guy is my hero. a bird caught bear handed with the pastor with the golden grip. he joins us live. >> i like his response. >> i got this bird. >> "fox & friends" hour one starts right now. ♪ ♪ >> good morning, again, everyone. we the want to start with the fox news alert. it was a chaotic scene on the rails two. trains packed with commuters coming home on a friday night. collided right on the track in connecticut during last night's evening rush hour. 60 people were taken to the hospital and at least five this morning have critical injuries. >> pictures you are looking
3:02am
at showing the mangled mess of metal inside the train, seats on top of seats. even the roof collapsing in some parts. a man who was on one of those trains describes trying to help a fellow passenger. >> kind of in and out of consciousness. kept asking the same question over and over again like what happened? where are are we he? i kept telling her we are on the train. it crashed. >> right now there is no word on what caused the crash. the ntsb is investigating the tracks because the tracks were so severely damaged. rail service has been stopped. officials say it can take until monday for service to be restored. amtrak which uses the same line suspended service from new york to boston until further notice. it caused a cascading effect of delays and cancellations throughout this entire area. much who are on that coming up here on information this morning. >> unbelievable. train travel is the safest possible way to get from a to b.
3:03am
>> you never think that mistake is going to be made when they are on the same track. >> that is my train that i take home from work. that's the route i take. i think my husband was on that train not when it crashed. he got off that very train it left grand central at 4:40 yesterday afternoon and, you know, just packed. standing room only because some people are leaving for the weekend. so thats was an intense scene in connecticut fairfield county. >> intense scenes, drama in washington as the former head of the irs shows up on the hill for a grilling from both democrats and republicans over the question of why the irs apparently targeted president obama's political enemies over the period of almost two years. >> yeah, this is outgoing irs commissioner stephan miller. and, as tucker mentioned, democrats wanting answers, too. although they were hoping it wouldn't turn into some sort of political theater. i don't know that they got their wish. certainly the answers were not forthcoming. that is what angered many
3:04am
people yesterday during this testimony. take a listen. >> we were repeatedly told no such targeting was happening. that isn't being mislead. that is lying. >> this is very chilling for the american people. now i know you are resigning and you are walking away from it, but this is not going to go away. this is a pandora's box that has been opened. i don't think you can get the lid back on it. >> do you believe it is illegal for employees of the irs to create lists, to target individual groups and citizens in this country. >> i think the inspector general indicated it might not be others will be able to tell that. >> what do you believe? >> i don't believe it is. >> i am really concerned. i have got to tell you, with you are sitting you should be outraged but you are not. the american people should be outraged, and they are. >> i'm not arguing that the list was bad and that the list was conservative based. >> then i would say, excuse
3:05am
me i'm going to reclaim my time on this then i would say it's targeted. you can't have that both ways. that's targeting and there is 16 times in this report that says that there was targeting. >> this is a problem of the irs being too large, too powerful, too intrusive, and too abusive of honest, hard-working taxpayers. >> this is a huge blow to the faith and trust of the american people have in their government. is there any limit to the scope of where you folks can go? >> this is wrong to abuse the tax system. this screams out for tax reform, does it not? >> i think it's an area right for redefinition and reform, yes, sir. >> do you want to know where a lot of this comes from? look at senator levin's letter. senator levin specifically mental add bunch of the groups that you all targeted. you were all doing what democrat senators were asking. >> i just think the american people have seen what's going on right now in their government. this is absolutely an
3:06am
overreach and outrage for america. >> i yield back. [ applause ] >> all right. >> senator mike kelly there at the end. that was one of the loudest fits of applause. mike kelly said you can put anybody out of business if you want to. you are the irs. how scary is that. when the irs comes in there you are not allowed to be showedy. this is an overreach. >> they prevented people from going into business. this is in the middle of a presidential campaign. they hamstrung some of the president's most vocal opponents prevented them from entering into the campaign debate. when charlie rangel head of the ways and means committee does not pay his own taxes is outraged. you know it's a story. >> you know it's bad. >> the woman who was in charge of the tax exempt office during this time from something like 2009 to 2012, his name is sarah hall ingram, moved on to obama care, affordable care
3:07am
act. now they are saying this is the woman who allowed this be on the lookout for targeting list of the tea party she is going to be the law enforcement officer of who complies with obama care? they don't like that plan. >> do you think? >> this can't stand. you couldn't make this up. it is the woman who oversaw this attack on the president's political opponents is now running the irs arm of obama care? can it actually happen? no. >> well, democrats defending her saying, look, she was gone six months before her subordinates even knew about what was unfolding. democrats coming to her defense and republicans saying that's not true. that time line doesn't mesh she did oversee the subordinates who knew what was going on with the irs. >> let's be clear, there was not a single tea party group to receive irs tax exempt status for 27
3:08am
months. meanwhile all kinds of left wing progressive groups got their status including flakey ones, a flake charity called the barack h. ba ramah in alexandria virginia is not even real and they got it in 32 days. >> so fast the turnover for any democratic. >> not just the republicans being prevented from entering into political debate democrats got fast tracked. >> alisyn: curious to see how much money people make and look at their paychecks. this is what has been published about sarah hall ingram when she was in charge. in $2,009,179,000. almost $180,000. her salary went up during the course of those three years with bonuses. can you see she got some significant bonuses to $212,000 in 2011, $203,000 in 2012. >> tea party members saying and tea party groups saying
3:09am
this absolutely cannot fly. we are demanding her resignation. you cannot put this woman at the head of obama care. the sensitive healthcare information we're going to trust our healthcare information with this woman? that's what tea party groups are saying. >> enforced it for people who were not complying. >> tucker: you didn't listen to the president in his commencement address you would have to be a crackpot. government your friend. anyone who thinks otherwise is paranoid and crazy and outside the mainstream. big data is a real concern. not just business. federal government, gun registry, obama care and a lot of information. we have to trust it's being used in a fair judicious way and it's not we're learning. >> alisyn: just because i'm paranoid doesn't mean i'm rgt tad? that ghooms play. get to the headlines and tell you what else is happening at this hour. we know the identity of the hofstra student killed in a terrifying home invasion. a masked gunman broke into
3:10am
the off campus home of andrea robelo held jessica and hostage sending a third woman to an atm to get money. that woman called police. when police arrived, gunshots rang out leaving rebello and gunman dead. no one else was hurt in this tragedy. and frightening moments at the cowan film festival. tv channel interviewing django unchained at christopher walsh when a guy fired a gun outdoor studio. everyone running for cover. fortunately the gun did not have real bullets. steve pulled off a million-dollar jewelry heist at a hotel just blocks from the red carpet. the safe was ripped right out of the wall. police think this was an inside job. $2 and a dream. that's all it takes to win
3:11am
tonight's 600-million-dollar power ball drawing. people have been waiting hours in line to get a ticket. largest power ball pot ever. and second largest jackpot in u.s. history. largest or second largest? if no one wins, officials safer it could hit a billion dollars. you have until 9:00 p.m. it to get your ticket. >> we are always so lazy to buy tickets. do you buy tickets for this stuff. >> i think you can get rich without working. i think the government swoops in and gives you a billion dollars. if there is anything more corrosive to the work ethic or more depressing or dispiriting watching people stand in line for hours to buy a ticket for something they are not going to win. it's like the most depressing thing i have ever seen. the government ought to be ashamed. what about the statistics. rick buys like five tickets. don't you have more of a chance of being struck by lightning. >> yeah i think multiple times. >> multiple times. >> i feel like tucker is
3:12am
going to be staring at us all in the line when w. a lot of disdain. >> when the mafia runs the lottery i will play. they are fairer. >> there you go. we have a big weather weekend we are going to be talking about all day long today. here are the temps. warm terms across the central plains. not only is it warm but extremely sticky out there. take a look at the satellite radar picture. see the eastern part of the country we have got some storms. this is all the leftover from the storms that brought the tornadoes to areas around dallas. a couple days ago. go out across areas of the west. that's where we see the next storm coming. in this storm is moving into what is now finally kind of an air mass that is primed for tornadoes. we haven't really seen that this season. as you move forward we will see this the area today where we have a threat for severe weather. this red is the bulls eye i think for the highest concentration of tornadoes we will see across parts of western, oklahoma. woodward, westerners i can't of kansas. maybe parts of nebraska. go forward to tomorrow. this is a three day event we are talking about.
3:13am
already a moderate risk issued tomorrow as well from kansas city through tulsa to oklahoma city. by monday, slides a little bit farther off toward the east. three day severe weather event. possibly lots of large tornadoes we are going to be talking about over the weekend. guys? >> thanks so much. coming up, she says she wants to die. will the jury give jodi arias her wish? what does the family of the man she murdered want to happen this week? we have a friend of travis alexander joining us next. >> then if you saw a little girl trapped under a car on the side of the road, would you help? good samaritans worked together to save her life. we have that story coming up. ♪ i need a hero ♪ i am holding on for a hero till the end of the night ♪ has he got to be strong ♪ and he's he has got to be fast ♪ the kyocera torque lets you hear and be heard

block the acid with prilosec otc and don't get heartburn in the first place! [ male announcer ] e pill eachmorning. 24 hours. zero heartbur >> we are so grateful for our wonderful brother, and we feel so lucky and blessed for the time rehad with travis. however short lived. we would give anything to have him back. >> alisyn: that was emotional testimony from victim travis alexander's family. so will it be life or death for jodi arias. trial attorney heather hanson is here to go over the legal issues. chris hughes was a good friend of travis alexander.
3:18am
he is here from. welcome to both of you. >> good morning. >> chris, what do you want to see happen this week when jodi arias is sentenced? >> well, you know what? some people deserve the death penalty and jodi arias is one of those people. no doubt about it. >> chris, you know, she said in a jail house interview that she would rather be given the death penalty than spend the rest of her life any of a little cell. what do you think of that? i don't buy it. that's jody being jody. she has had guns. she has had knives. she has had plenty of time to take her life if she truly wanted to die. i don't believe that i think that's her doing what she does. that's just manipulating and playing on people's emotions. >> heather, what do you think the likelihood is that jodi arias gets death this week? >> you know, alisyn, in this particular county, highest county for giving
3:19am
the death penalty. do i think that this jury has a strong likelihood of finding for the death penalty. what they have to do is weigh the aggravating factors which is what juan martinez has already argued the cruelty at this of her act against any mitigating factors that the defense puts on. they have a hard time finding any mitigating factors for jody. they will note she is a good friend and artist. take that against the emotion you have heard from the family on wednesday. it's going to be a very tough tough argument for the defense. >> chris, how is travis' family reacting to the verdict and what do they want to see happen this week? family elated up to this point. can i just tell you that 8 out of 8 of them of the siblings or i should say seven out of 8 now that travis is gone. seven out of the 8 of them want the death penalty. this has wrecked their entire family. she didn't just kill him, she killed him in a
3:20am
barbaric way and she has gone on to kill him even now after all these years she is still killing him, his reputation, and all that he has got left today, which is his legacy. >> heather, how unusual will it be if a woman is put to death? >> you know, there has been very few women put to death across the united states. and in arizona there is only three women on death row. but, you know, this type of case is the case that's most well-suited for it. you know, as he stated, jody has lied on the stand. she has given these interviews. if she dared to get on the stand and say she does not want to be put to death, that interview is going to be played and she is going to be cross-examined on that. if anyone is going to find that as their final resting spot, i think it will be jody. >> alisyn: heather hanson and chris hughes. thanks so much for joining us this morning. >> thank you. >> alisyn: the man who o.j. simpson says botched his armed robbery case has his say in court. why his testimony may threaten simpson's chances
3:21am
of ever walking free again. hungry for comfort food. a look at some of the best. why are twice as many people choosing verizon over any other carrier? many choose us because we have the largest 4glte network. others, because of our reputation for reliability. or maybe it's because we've received jd power and associates' customer service award 4x in a row. in the end, there are countless reasons. but one choi.

places that we all would long to eat with you we have to keep on driving because we have got kids yelling in the back of the car. >> it's that kind of a drive. although we don't drive anymore. back in the day we actually got to drive the car from spot to spot. the show gained so much popularity we fly. and the car is shipped. >> you are here where is the car? >> i'm like it's sitting right outside. carry on. >> you land at the airport, you hop in and drive to the location. >> it's not even that anymore. doing three locations a day. doing 39 shows a year. 39 locations in a show. it turns into a lot of travel. they bring the car. it's actually my car. a '68 can a can a can a -- camaro 68 rs. >> is the food that good? some of the stuff you are eating on the show i wish i was there eating it with you. >> unfortunately, they show me taking the three bites that i will take to really get the idea about the food and be able to give the

3:27am
i will leave it at that you need a but ton for that creativity these people have. entire cheeseburgers submerged in batter and deep fried. i'm not a huge friday food fan. that show is about the burgers and the hot dogs. what i appreciate about the show the most is the hand made ethnic food that he wool find. we will find it from every different country. and that is the great thing. you will be in pittsburgh and you will find a lebanese restaurant all of a sudden. when we show that to folks. well go, to pittsburgh. i will get sandwiches and burgers and that type of staple food get off that beaten path and check out funky joints it will amaze you. >> get to see america in a way that most people don't get to see it? >> we are the melting pot. that was a phrase that was said about us a long time ago. you really think about it. we are. we have so many different ethnic groups representing so much great food you have to look for. >> it i would be remiss if i didn't blooper show airing tonight. i have to imagine a lot of
3:28am
things have to go wrong on this show. you are a fun guy. things have to go wrong. >> like it show all kind of antics behind the scenes. characters have you working on the show. that's what happens with my crew. 20 people on the crew. the best people in the world. they make the show. i'm go doing the piece on tv. researchers, the producers, the camera men. when the camera is off or when i think it's off. who knows what is going on? so they captured all of that footage, put it into a blooper, showed it to me on my birthday and said what do you think? this is funny, we want to put it on the air. it's on food network pretty hysterical. >> check that out. drivers, dine-ins. thanks for coming on. >> emergency landing at newark airport as the plane is forced to do a belly flop on the run way there these are the pictures. we will show you the video coming up. then, you can do this? it's the amazing bunji

3:34am
>> clayton: i can't do that. can i do 20 of these this morning. >> alisyn: arm curls. >> clayton: where is is the investigation going this week. you think you can't get more seedy and problematic for the white house thomas pickerring former u.s. ambassador for the united states is now being subpoenaed to head into the house of representatives and give up more information because they are not happy with his original report that left out some key people that he should have been interviewing. this investigation initially should have had key individuals like hillary clinton. why was she not interviewed in this initial process. >> the secretary of state should have some responsibility for a state department snafu? >> you would think the head of that particular department. >> you would think that wouldn't you? >> alisyn: right. much like the irs scandal happening right now. it's very hard for people to actually explain when called to testify in front of congress who issueded.
3:35am
>> clayton: standdown? >> alisyn: for this one it's the standdown for the irs it's to be on the lookout for. who was responsible for these edigits that came down? stephan haze was on "special report" and talked about where benghazi goes now. >> pattern claims by jay carney and hillary clinton among others that the white house, the state department made a single adjustment to the talking points. simply not true. i am surprised that some in the mainstream media are not taking more umbrage at the fact that they were lied to so directly about something like that. more broadly, i think the next big question is how do we get the movie? where did the movie enter this discussion? it wasn't in any of the talking points. it was mentioned in passing, not in any of the actual email discussions in the nearly 100 pages of emails but in passing, on the first page and again on the last page as part of a subject line of an email. we need to know more about how they settled on the
3:36am
story to sell the movie. >> interesting point right in the middle of that which is jay carney, long-time reporter for "time" magazine stands up in front of his former colleagues in the press corps and flat out lies, flat out provablably lies and says there was just minor change made to the talking points. they are not offended? they are not outraged? they are not besieging him with questions at the podium? why aren't they madder? the white house press secretary is not supposed to lie to reporters that's not conventional. >> alisyn: not part of the job description. part of that arb, accountability review report, four people lost their jobs, sort of or were put on administrative leave. we now know from a state department spokesperson this week that in fact they are still collecting their paychecks and she couldn't tell a reporter whether or not they have to still go into the office or if they can be sitting on a beach while collecting their paycheck. >> that's nice. >> clayton: that's nice. >> tucker: unbelievable.
3:37am
>> clayton: only in the government could you have this level of a problem in the workplace and still get paid for it and then not have to go to the office. >> tucker: they don't do that here at fox, do they? >> alisyn: no. so don't mess up. no pressure but don't screw anything up. we have a fox news alert we want to get to right now. we have breaking news out of new jersey. a plane was forced to make a belly landing overnight at newark international airport after its landing gear malfunctioned mid-air. you can see this all unfolding right here on your screen. this happened shortly after the u.s. air waist flight took off from philadelphia. 31 people were on board. sparks flew as the pilot landed. crews quickly doused the flame with foam. fortunately happy to report no one was hurt. o.j. simpson' plea new trial now in the hands las vegas judge. he wants 2008 thrown out blaming lawyer for blowing the case. simpson's former attorney on the stand refuting most of simpson' testimony. for one he said he knew his
3:38am
accomplices had guns during the robbery. >> i handed it over to him and i said what are you talking about? what are you doing? >> alisyn: simpson gave up attorney-client privilege to galanter could testify. state trooper rescuing a little girl pinned under a large suv. he tried to lift the vehicle himself. he could not so he got four bystanders to pitch in and together they were able to lift up the car enough to get the 8-year-old girl out. the child was last listed in serious but stable condition. guys let me ask you this. what do you get bunji jumping and basketball? >> i know the answer to that aly, great video. >> let's watch it. [cheers] >> anybody can make that shot. >> who would think to?
3:39am
>> even lebron james would have had trouble pulling this off our writers say. this guy jumped off 100-foot tower in jerry and drains a shot on the way down. take a look again, nothing but net. it took a group of friends about 210 before they finally nailed it that guy had to jump off a building 200 times? >> you know what? some things are just worth it, aly. >> that's tenacity. >> tucker: it really is and unemployment. >> clayton: your spine is all unaligned now. >> alisyn: retina is detached but congratulations. >> clayton: rick reichmuth knows something about scaling buildings. do you it one time. >> do you it five or six times it's not good. >> alisyn: take a basketball with you the next time you go to the top of the building. >> i like it. maybe i can dribble it from up there talk about the weather. we have a really big weather event happening this weekend. here you go. this is today's severe weather threat where you
3:40am
see that red area. that's the moderate risk issued by the storm prediction center. a big chance for some actually large tornadoes. that's going to be later on this evening and overnight. it's one of those dark night events for a lot of people there. make sure you are watching and have your noah radios and all those things ready for it first alert forecast across the northeast. few showers make their way into the mid-atlantic. it's hot across areas of texas and dew points are up. incredibly sticky. setting the stage for severe weather event. finally spring and summer-like very high dew points, very sticky conditions. out across the west, going to see mostly sunny skies. temps warm but not as warm as they have been. we will see that storm pulling in maybe a little bit of snow across parts of the rockies. all right. i want to bring in frank del vecco. you are the police chief. we are six months out from hurricane sandy and a lot of people starlight to
3:41am

of malice or political note investigation. mr. george, i want to know, do you still stand by that? >> we have no evidence at this time to contradict that aversion, sir. >> if the targeting wasn't targeting, if the targeting wasn't based on philosophy, how's come only conservatives got snagged? >> they didn't, sir. organizations from all walks and all persuasions were pulled in. >> did you have targeting lists that contained words like progressive or organizing in their names? >> we collected, to be blunt, more than tea party cases. >> no progressive or organizing buzz words that were used for targeting; is that correct? >> that's correct. >> alisyn: you heard congressman ryan there. >> unbelievable. >> alisyn: you say it was across the political spectrum. that's interesting. why weren't there any liberal groups with names like progress or progressive or organizing or liberal, some of the groups that we know have those things in their names but they weren't flagged.
4:06am
>> we know this is a flat lie. for 27 months not a single tea party group received irs tax exempt status. we know during that imsa period -- by the way this is in the run-up for a presidential campaign. and these were the groups owe posing the president's agenda and re-election. by hamstringing them of course the obama campaign helped. all kinds of liberal, progressive groups were fast tracked including the barack h. obama foundation which isn't even real got its clearance in 32 days don't tell me no politics were involved. >> clayton: no politics involved. >> tucker: i'm sorry it winds me up even at 7:06. >> clayton: why did that report come out and apologize for it and then come out and saying no politics involved in it seems absurd. those same tea party groups that were targets. the woman putting of obama care. this is the woman that will oversee the health and well being of this country as it relates to the irs. going after implementing obama care in the tax code.

she is sarah hall ingram. she from 2009 to 2012 was in charge of this very department. she oversaw these particular individuals who were, in fact, doing the targeting of these conservative groups. so, you can imagine how outraged these conservative groups are this morning when they are finding out that the woman who targeted them is now in charge of obama care overseeing the health and welfare system. >> alisyn: making sure you comply with obama care as a business. otherwise they will crack down on you and levy fines. >> what is -- how are they to believe that they won't then be targeted? >> alisyn: that is the question. >> tucker: what are you some kind of militia member? you don't trust the government? you don't trust sarah hall ingram to keep your data safe and not crush you if you oppose the president's agenda? >> alisyn: she has impressive pedigree, clayton. she went to undergraduate at yale. she went to law school at georgetown in -- she

5:06am
belligerent contempt of the american people and the constitutional rights that all of us have. i wondered did this guy ever read the constitution? does he understand that the irs does not have the right to invade people's privacy, ask them for their thoughts, ask them for their prayers, ask them for who they associate with. i mean, the violations of fundamental constitutional rights of americans are legion in all of this. for him to sit there and smirk toward these congressman who have ever right to answer ask him those questions and demand an honest answer i thought was repulsive. if i had been president obama watching that performance, i would have made sure that he didn't get to wait until june for his resignation, he would have been packing his cardboard box and escorted to the door that very day. >> tucker: he is getting paid. >> yes, he was. >> tucker: i don't understand how someone can get called up before a panel like, this he knows he is going to be asked who is responsible. he didn't even try.
5:07am
he said i have no idea. maybe can i get that information. are there going to be criminal charges? >> there should be. the only thing that would be, i think appropriate at this point. the next time that we see stephan miller ought to be the perp walk. what happened yesterday was indicative of the arrogance of government who thinks is that we work for the government and the government doesn't work for us. i was lived. >> what did you think about him not being able to answer any questions about the names? we were talking about in this morning. asked specific, who are these individuals? i don't know the names. you know what? , if i look into it maybe i could find them for you. >> alisyn: i have been busy pulling up the code of rules for the irs here. at one point he was asked is this illegal? do you think this is illegal targeting different groups? he said actually no, i don't think so. and, in fact, the law is sort of vague. it doesn't mention targeting. it he is is you can't use inappropriate criteria. do you think it's illegal what he they did. >> of course it is aly, on several counts. when you start asking
5:08am
people who they associate with. that's none of the government's business. we have the right to associate with people unless they are. when they ask prayer is. no one can dictate our prayers and say you are going to be either rewarded or punished. of your prayers. which was exactly one of the questions posed to one of these groups. look, when people like the billy graham association are questioned, give me a break. that's like saying we are not sure that mother teresa is the real deal so we are going to do a little investigating here. this is, i believe, this is one of the most outrageous assaults freedom i have seen. trying not to be hyperbo lick hard not to be when you see not just the abuse but the defense of it it i use these terms the contemptuous belligerent arrogance that he set there with and smirked toward these congressman and when asked a question well, i
5:09am

they don't have to overplay this. keep these people talking and i can't imagine any decent american is going to sit back and say that's okay with me. >> we are talking about sarah hall ingram. if you are listening to radio you didn't see what weigh put on the screen some of her history and bonuses. she went to yale university in 1979. she is now in charge of the tax portion of obama care law and so conservative groups are outraged. you were overseeing. look at her history in 2009 and 2012 when these allegations unfolded you were overseeing the very individuals who were doing these targeted looks at these different conservative groups and all the bonuses she got $206,000 when it was on the book and on the record in the light of day. >> all the concerns many people have had including me implementation of obama care and turning it over to the irs now has been not only revealed but affirmed to be a nightmare.

5:12am
on to flights. we know from the boston bombing tragedy. >> yeah. >> that agencies still are not speaking to each other when it comes to terrorism in this country. >> to borrow a phrase from governor rick perry, oops, here we go again. this is the gang that can't shoot straight. this is the gang that turned thousands of weapons over to mexican drug lords that resulted in the murder of border agent brian terry. you know, if they can't keep up with two terrorist suspects that they have in custody, then, you know, these are people that couldn't organize a two car funeral. come on. this is unbelievable that they just throw up their hands and say well, you know, we are just doing the west we can. well, that's not good enough. with the money we are paying for government and they want to raise taxes and charge us more, we are getting less and less? again, it's incompetence. but it's also a sense of arrogance, which i'm not sure which one is the worse. >> alisyn: by the way i think you were quoting brittany spears and not --

5:18am
investigative journalism to find out that the administration has not penalized wind farms but they do penalize lots of other. >> hunters. if you make ego sausage by way of a wind farm it's perfectly legitimate. if you should somehow even accidently kill a federally protected bird and i know people who have hunted and have accidently killed birds. they didn't kill and they are in a heap of trouble. lose their weapons, lose their hunting license for years. be prosecuted. pay huge fines and it just shows that, you know, the administration is very selective about the way it enforces laws. >> let's be specific. i find this completely hypocritical. each death is a federal crime. the obama administration has prosecuted oil companies when the birds have drown in their waste pits by accident they have fined power companies when the birds have landed on power lines and electrocuted by the power lines. how is that any different
5:19am
than a wind farm turbine? >> well, there is not a difference except in the minds of people in the administration who prefer so-called green forms of energy and everyone loves wind power until it gets real close to them and then the noise of it and the unsightliness of it the people of massachusetts complaints not only slaughtering birds but keeping them up at night. i'm not against wind farms solar all of this is fine. to say that the government is going to pick which energy source we have i think whether we need to decide is the purpose of the government to make wind instead, i think they are breaking wind. >> i was waiting for that. >> i will leave it there. >> assault on the idea of the rule of law. the idea that the law applies to all of us equally. we are all citizens equal before it. in fact, as in the case of the irs scandal, it's turning out that's not the way this administration sees the law. >> very selective in prosecution. very selective in whose objection gets gored. in this case its who eagle

gets gored. if it gets gored by wind farm it's really not a big deal. if it should happen to land on a power line then somebody is going to go to jail for that or have huge fine. >> who is on your show tonight. >> senator rand paul. a lady i think her story is going to be stunning and chilling. she is one of those folks who had been targeted by the irs. it incumbent just the irs who came after her. after her political views began to be known, several other government agencies started showing up in mass on her doorstep and that of her husband's manufacturing business. it is a chilling story of what the government can do when it goose steps in jack booted thuggery right to the door of an american citizen because we had the audacity to disagree with the government. >> tucker: i am watching that. >> you would have watched anyway though. >> clayton: great to he so you. >> alisyn: fight over second amendment rights is heating up. move just made by sheriffs in colorado over new gun restriction. >> tucker: group of interns suing for back pay claiming

5:26am
here though throwing this thing out saying they are not a protected class? >> i think the decision is a set back. any intern would tell you, parents of interns, people worked with interns there are indeed a lot of commonalities. young person in many cases working unpaid or very low paid. often out of college or just in college. a lot of commonalities. the decision does leave that core issue whether intern should be paid for real work is divided. >> i'm of the opinion. i think i had three internships during college none of which i was paid for. the hands on experience i got was incalculable. i couldn't get to do the full job the other individuals were doing but i did get college credit and i thank those internships for giving me the foundation to go off and work in a career in broadcasting. >> clearly there are lots of valuable internships out there. for young people this is the major or principle way into certainly the kind of white collar workforce at this point. what's happened in recent years and become particularly clear over the

>> alisyn: stunning surprise? week. actress angelina jolie announced she underwent double mastectomy after receiving knowledge she had gene. our next guest has been faced with having to make this life saving decision. here to share her story is the president and executive director of the frazier foundation. michelle mcbride and frazier is the wife of fox news channel producer woody frazier. michelle, great to see you this morning. >> hi, good to he see you. thank you. >> alisyn: tell us about -- discovering that you too had the so-called braca jean and how hard the decision for double mastectomy was for you it? >> was extremely difficult
5:47am
decision. when i first found out that i had the gene, the first thing i did is try to figure out well, what are my options? what can i do? surgery is not the only option. and, in fact, i waited to have surgery because i still wanted to have another child. so, i began an increased level of screening. when you are at an increased risk, you can have mri and sometimes an ultrasound of the ovaries on top of your annual mammograms that you would be getting. and so i started with that. as a way to help detect cancer early should i develop it. but i spent a lot of time researching my options. i met with medical centers and teams across the country. >> alisyn: yeah. >> and researched online and spoke to a number of women before me who had done it, before i made my decision to have a double mastectomy. >> alisyn: michelle, it's interesting to hear that.
5:48am
i didn't really know you did have any options. once you are diagnosed and the gene is detected. for instance angelina jolie's mother died of owe ovarian cancer when she was 56. she was diagnosed 46. why didn't angelina wait a few years, several years. she did it at 37 years old. it's interesting to know that she had other options. she could have just been monitored for a while. >> that's a good question. of course, i don't know angelina personally so i can't tell you what exactly went through her mind. i can tell you that doctors say in terms of your own cancer risks of onset, when you come from a family of cancer patients, you can expect to develop cancer 10 years prior to when your, you know, your mother had had it. so angelina was probably looking at it that way. if my mom was diagnosed with cancer at 46, i could get it around now i didn't
5:49am
know it. that's a great point. your story had a happy ending and resolution for you. after you had the double mastectomy you knew that your decision was the right one. >> yeah. you struggle and you struggle with it it it's not an easy decision. and even immediately after i had the mastectomy i doubted whether i did the right thing. because it's scary and it's awful and it's emotional. but afterwards, after meeting with my doctor. i learned that the pathology came back on my breast tissue and that in fact, i had had cancer that had gone undetected in my left breast. >> alisyn: incredible. >> and the surgery got it all it was incredible. >> alisyn: what a good resolution and closure for you. michelle mcbride. thanks for sharing your personal story. we appreciate the brave you of you and people like angelina jolie. thank you. >> thank you. >> alisyn: how a thief got away with goods worth a million dollars. was this an inside job?

railroad has been stopped for now. the goal is to get things back on track by monday. we'll see. amtrak, which uses the very same rail line, has suspended its service from new york city to boston indefinitely. >> investigators are on the scene and we'll keep you posted for the next hour as to what they uncover and how this could have happened. meanwhile, we're following this story for you. of course, if you're watching fox newschannel yesterday, you saw the grilling unfolding on capitocapitol hill as the former the outgoing, i should say, commissioner of the irs, stephen miller, was being grilled by members of congress yesterday over exactly what unfolded and how in the world the i r s managed to target conservative groups. he was grilled on both sides by both democrats and republicans. democrats were hoping at one point to try to not turn this into some sort of repeat of the 2012 election, but i don't know if they got their way. >> we put together a montage, a couple minutes long. we think it's worth it. the hearing was four hours long, but this gives you a sense of the drama yesterday here in
6:03am
washington. here's stephen miller trying to defend himself and the irs. watch. >> we were repeatedly told no such targeting was happening. that isn't being misled. this is lying. >> this is very chilling for the american people. i know you're resigning, you're walking away from it. this is not going to go away. this is a pan dora's box that has been opened. i don't think we can get the lid back on it. >> do you believe it's illegal for employees of the irs to create lists to target individual groups and citizens in this country? >> i think that the treasury inspector general indicated it might not be. others might be able to tell that. >> what do you believe? >> i don't believe it is. >> i am really concerned. i've gotta tell you. where you're sitting, you should be outraged, but you're not. the american people should be outraged, and they are. >> i'm not arguing that the list was bad and that the list was conservative-based. >> then i would say -- excuse
6:04am
me, i'm going to reclaim my time on this. then i would say it's targeted. you can't have that both ways. that's tacialtd and there are -- targeted and there are 16 times in the report that it says there were targeting. >> this is a problem of the irs being too large, too powerful, too intrusive on honest, hard-working taxpayers. >> this is a huge blow to the faith and trust the american people have in their government. is there any limit to the scope of where you folks can go? >> this is wrong to abuse the tax system. this screams out for tax reform, does it not? >> i think it's an area ripe for redefinition and reform, yes, sir. >> do you want to know where a lot of this comes from? look at sandra levin's letter. senator levin specifically mentioned a bunch of the groups that y'all ta targeted. y'all were doing what democratic senators were asking. >> i think the american people have seen what's going on in their government.
6:05am
this is disliewlt a absolutely h and an outrage for america. >> by the way, we should mention the congressman there, mike kelly who you heard get the loudest round of applause will join us here tomorrow on the show. one of the things he said ant wanted further to say is the irs is forcing businesses to not be able to open or to close as a result of what seems like a very draconian use of this institution. >> and remarkably, steve miller who you saw on the stand there, the interim commissioner of the irs, he didn't like the word targeted. he was stuck on a semantics point. he was like i find that to be a perjorative term. i wouldn't say we were targeting. the amount of parsing, tucker, you sometimes give clayton and me grief for living in new york because there's so much regulation. in washington, dc where you live, the amount of parsing of words where they spent time on during these four hours yesterday. >> this was just poor customer service, mr. miller described it yesterday. just to be totally clear, this
6:06am
was a political operation. this took place within the context of a presentation campaign. this had the effect of hamstringing the president's political opponents during that campaign. to say there was no targeting flies in the face of the facts. here's one. during a 27-month period, at the height of this, not a single tea party group got tax-exempt status from the irs. during that same period, left wing group after left wing group got their applications expedited. a sham charity in alex andyia, virginia, they don't do anything. they got their application rubber stamped in 32 days by lois ler ner herself. >> by the way, i called for my own amusement on friday. >> you prank called it. >> yes, i did. no one there, doesn't exist. the answering machine says welcome to the barack obama foundation. they didn't pronounce the
6:07am
maybe it's somebody different named barack obama. furthermore, we've had some guests from the tea party who tried to get tax-exempt status. they said the irs wanted their e-mails, the irs wanted their donor list, all sorts of loot that they had to go through. >> a number of people came forward including on the air here at fox to say they were audited by the irs, the most terrifying ordeal of all, including one businessman truly who supported mitt romney's campaign. he was highlighted in an anti-obama ad, and immediately after found himself audited three times in four months. if that's not a horrifying abuse of government power, i don't know what it is. >> conservative groups are angrieangrier over who the white is putting in charge of the i r s portion of obama care. they will se oversee these agen. sarah hall ingram. her history goes back to 2009
6:08am
when she was at the head of the irs overseeing these very individuals who we now know had targeted conservative groups. furthermore, she had been promoted and given bonuses throughout this entire period. >> she was in charge of the tax-exempt status division which is exactly what this falls under, and you can see that she got many bonuses during the time that this was happening to the tune of something like $100,000, so now obviously republicans are very concerned she will be the very person at the affordable care act who will make sure that businesses comply. well, will she only be looking at conservative businesses and making sure that they adhere to the letter of the law while granting waivers to liberal businesses? i mean, these are the questions being raised today because they all seem to be political. the decision making. >> she can't run it. the government in part runs on trust. we send our money in every april 15th with the expectation we're all going to be treated equally under the law. as soon as that trust erodes, and in this case evaporates with good reason, the whole system comes apart.
6:09am
that's an attack against the rule of law. this woman cannot remain in that job, and i don't think she will. >> let us know how you feel about it. mike kelly will be on the show tomorrow with more on the hearing. there's another fox alert for you right now. a plane has been forced to make an emergency landing overnight at new jersey's newark international airport after one of its landing gears malfunctioned in mid air. the scary scene was caught on camera. you can see it there. it happened after the u.s. airways flight took off from philadelphia. sparks flew as the pilot performed this deli landing and crews quickly doused the plane with foam as you can see. fortunately, none of the 31 passengers on board was hurt. there were some frightening moments at the the cannes film festival in france. a man fired a gun near the outdoor studio during an interview. you can see everyone running for cover. fortunately the gun did not have real bullets and no one was hurt. there was more trouble the night before. thieves pulled off a million

6:12am
this moment. it may be another inch or two of rain falling from that. no severe weather with that storm. out across areas of the west, a new storm is pulling on here, very cold air going to be moving in to this very warm air, and this warm air is also very moist, getting people on twitter saying it's incredibly sticky across areas of texas. you factor in that humidity, the first time we've really seen humid conditions and warm conditions across the lower levels of the atmosphere so far this season. that's why we haven't really had many tornadoes. that's going to combine with the storm moving in, a big kink in the jet stream here setting up the ingredient fos for a severe weather outbreak today, tomorrow, and monday. i think we'll see tomorrow probably the worst of the days, but today also a very bad day. likely also, guys, going to start after the sun goes down tonight and into the overnight hours. that means you have to have those noa noaa weather radios oo be alerted about the storms coming at you. is the white house unfairly targeting whistleblowers as well?

6:54am
you hear horror stories about people winning the lottery, their dreams come true, their lives collapse. yours didn't. why? >> i guess that's open to interpretation, but i have a very good team of people that keep us grounded and keep us directed and focused and you know, my family is -- my family is very strong. we also believe, you know, if you're not happy before the money, the money is not going to make you happy. you have to be happy before it happens. otherwise, you're headed for a bad road. >> tucker: you have some tips. if someone wins tonight and doesn't go on to become a billion dollar pool of money, if someone walks away with that tonight, you say don't rush to claim the check as your first tip. why not? >> well, because there's so many things you need to do behind the scenes before that comes out. i see winners over the last eight years, and they come out the next day, and the first thing i say is oh, they're in trouble because you can't -- there's so much due diligence that needs to be done before you claim that prize. and the money's not going anywhere, and you need to have

6:56am
>> yeah. i mean, certainly with any lottery jackpot and certainly $600 million, there's quite a lot of thought that has to go into this. i mean, right after it happened to us, there's no book that tells you what to do, but we were contacted probably by about 200 financial advisory firms that wanted our business, of course, and you know, for someone like me or most people, that's just uncharted waters. you need to have somebody that's been, you know, that can handle those types of things, estate attorneys and financial planners. it's significant. >> alisyn: it sure is. steve white, thanks for sharing it with us. you're sitting in front of your own private jet. i guess some things work out. >> well, it's a business, so yeah. it's a business. >> alisyn: you got it. >> alisyn: more "fox & friends" in three minutes. i'mla going to play the lottery. no. why? apparently my debit card is. what? i know. don't worry, we have cancelled your old card.
